In the light of
yesterday’s advice from the government and the fact that our library is manned
by people who should take extra care in the current situation, we have
decided to alter the library opening hours.
The community library will ONLY be open on:
Monday: 10am – 1pm
Tuesday: 2pm – 5pm
Wednesday: 10am – 1pm
Thursday: 2pm – 5pm
notice, we unfortunately have to curtail ALL our activities.
Please keep an eye
on our website and social media for updates on this situation, which we hope
will be resolved as soon as possible.
If not why not consider speaking with your neighbours and become involved in Neighbourhood Watch and help reduce crime. There is very little effort required in setting up and running a scheme and it can have significant positive effects on your street. If you are interested in starting a Neighbourhood Watch please contact:
From Tuesday 12th February we shall be offering a weekly (term time) employability support session. Help with job applications, CV and covering letter writing, training support and assistance with completing Universal Credit applications. Drop in between 10am and midday on Tuesdays.
The grant will pay for an IT tutor to run basic and intermediate classes at Brockworth Library on a weekly basis for the course of a year.
Nina Walsh, Chair of Brockworth Community Project said: “We were absolutely delighted to receive the grant from Santander Foundation, as we shall be able to offer a vital opportunity to the members of the local community to improve IT skills. It was a very generous grant and everyone at the Project is grateful for the support and encouragement given by Santander Foundation to our charity. Thank you!”
Amy Slack, Manager at the Santander Foundation said: “The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes throughout the UK. Our branch is committed to playing a key part in the community and we are delighted to be supporting Brockworth Community Project, and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people.”
Brockworth Community Project has recently been awarded a grant from Gloucestershire Environmental Trust. This grant has enabled the Project to undertake some building work at the Community Library. This work has involved moving the kitchen to a new location within the building and completely refurbishing it with new units, flooring and decoration. Two cloakrooms have been upgraded, a new store room has been created and access to all these new rooms has been improved. The trustees of Brockworth Community Project are extremely grateful to Gloucestershire Environmental Trust for their support and generosity. Pictures of refurbishment to follow shortly…
